As soon as we’ve got hold of the latest flagship from Kata Digital, we are in awe of the Kata i4 superb design, so far among the Kata smartphone lines. And at last, Kata produced an entirely different specs and look embodied on Kata i4.
Let’s start with the design
We cannot call it sleek but Kata i4 is stylishly designed and has evolved from the usual look of its predecessors and we are thankful that it was produced as it should be. At 144.5mm in length, 71.5mm in width, 6.5mm thickness, and 161g in weight, Kata i4 is slightly similar to Kata i3s with little details upgraded for the convenience of the user. The bezel design of Kata i4 looks like an off-shoot of Kata M2 with a much bigger speaker grill, both front and back. All sidings are in metal and Kata i4 have a slightly curved back surface.
Display and Camera
The 5-inch IPS HD gives a much clearer and crisp graphic with bright colors perfect for photos, videos, and gaming experience.
As we toyed around Kata i4, we’ve also discovered its great camera feature that comes from its KitKat OS version. Two-finger sensor easily captures the subject without pressing the camera button for extra ease and accessibility.
Details of the image captured by the 16 MP rear and 8 MP front are far better than the other brands we have reviewed so far.
As of now, we are loving Kata i4. Check out our user review here.
To think that Kata i4 is packed with MTK 6592 Octa Core processor and 1.7GHz chipset, 2GB RAM, and massive storage of 32GB internal storage is already amazing. And you know what? Kata Philippines is giving 35GB online storage for free upon pre-ordering Kata i4 starting January 2, 2015. That’s a lot of storage, guys.
We have mentioned in our previous blog that the price will be a little over but not less than Php 9,000++. Our guess was somehow correct. Kata i4 is available for only Php 9,799 when you pre-order and it comes with a free power bank.
Being it an octa core smartphone, we all expecting for a bigger battery, right? To be honest, Kata i4 has 2300mAh built-in battery up to its sleeve. It could be a major issue, mostly for hardcore users, but on the lighter side, this makes the built less heavier and difficult to carry.
NFC ready and enabled
Now what surprised us even more is when we discovered that Kata i4 is NFC (near-field communication) ready and enabled. Perhaps, this is the breakthrough we are waiting for. A smartphone capable of NFC. And we can’t believed it at first until we tried sharing photos with another NFC enabled phone and we’ve got our first beam successful! Wow!
This is the future and Kata is moving with it, forward.
